Facade Zero

Facade Zero

Flügger Facade is products for exterior treatment of mineral substrates. Provides a diffusion-open, weather-resistant surface.

Product Description

Matte 100% acrylic facade paint, which provides a highly colour retentive, water resistant surface with minimal water absorption and maximum weather resistance. Can be used at low temperatures. Prevents the formation of mould and mould growth on the surface.
  • Matte and maximum weather resistance
  • Can be applied at low temperature, down to 0°C.
  • Highly colour retentive

Usage

New, untreated mineral facades such as concrete, lightweight concrete and previously painted substrates treated with acrylic paint.

Substrate

Must be clean, dry, firm and suitable for surface treatment.
The surface must be completely dry containing no efflorescence.
Rising ground moisture or moisture from cracks, protrusions such as water traps, uncovered wall coping or other constructions details must not be permitted.
New, cement-based surfaces must be cured for at least 4 weeks before undergoing treatment.
Leaching of salts and other water-soluble components must not occur.
Cement-bound surfaces must be treated at the earliest after 4 weeks, brick at the earliest after 2 years.
Not used for substrates joined or plastered with pure lime mortar.

Treatment

Remove precipitates, loose material and paint by washing and cleaning.
Dirt, grease and contaminants should be removed using Façade Clean.
Algae, mould and mould growth are removed by cleaningwith Façade Algae Remover.
Larger cracks and other damage must be filled with cement-bound material.
Prime new substrates and light chalking or absorbent surfaces using Flügger Facade Primer.
Treat two or more times for optimal durability.

Application

Brush, roller or spray gun.
Decide on your mode of application according to the desired finish.
Apply uniformly wet on wet, finish by brushing in the same direction.
Always use the same batch no. on contiguous/unbroken surfaces.
Cold / heat can affect the viscosity of the material.
Material temperature for spray painting, min. 15°C.
Condensation must be prevented during drying/curing.
Avoid working in rain or direct sunlight.
Cold and increased humidity extends drying time, full curing and recoating interval.
Increased temperature and low atmospheric humidity reduce drying time and full curing.
Always test adhesion and result before hanging.

Matte, covered surface. Expected durability 15 years.
Withstands high pressure washing: Max. 80 bar, min. 30 cm from the substrate, water temperature max. 30°C.
The durability of the surface depends on construction, how it is applied and exposure. The expected durability can therefore be shorter or longer than stated.
Chalking from strong shades due to excess pigment may occur.
There can be differences in shades due to uneven substrates and exposure.

Good to know

Be Aware

Protect freshly painted surface from adverse weather conditions.
Take appropriate measures against the effects of moisture and rainfall on freshly painted surfaces.
The surface achieves maximum robustness when fully cured.
